    Guys working as Maximo Admins, could you please suggest some good dashboards / Start Centers (example: number of users logged in for each site) for System Administrators which would help in performing better system admin work.

    Note: Considering the integration with other systems like MS D365, Jodyn, Coupa, Great Plains, Geothentic, Geotab.

    Atish, I wish I had 1 good answer for you, but I don't. You can find a sample at
     and you can skip to about 34 minutes in (in case it does not automatically start there) for a sample admin center, and this was just for a demo. What I do see in many that I have built however, is a list of users logged in or blocked which you will see in the video, including the commonly used fields. Query is

    userid in (select userid from maxsession) or (status in (select value from synonymdomain where maxvalue = 'BLOCKED' and domainid = 'MAXUSERSTATUS' and defaults = 1)) order by DEFSITE, USERID

    Remember to use the single, non curly quotation mark.

    Most everything else is driven by 2 factors
    • Client application usage (if no workflow, then no Workflow Admin favorite)
    • Time
      • Before go-live
      • Go-live thru the first year
      • Post year 1

    Biggest changes over time tend to be system configuration items that are hopefully no longer looked at on any regular basis, so Application Designer / DB Config eventually fall off of the start center as favorites.

    Atish , you can think of various factors and build specific dashboards /KPI here are some generic:
    1. JVM wise server load like target users , logged in sessions etc
    2. Details around failed integration transactions 
    3. Details around critical cron task run/execution history
    4. Reports running longer than threshold like 5-10 minutes
    5. Active users not logged in for threshold time like last 90 days
    6. Details around key business areas - Invoices etc

    there can be many more both in terms of production system health and business critical functions specific app/process health to be focused
